Purveyor of fine workout gear Lululemon Athletica will be holding a series of shape-up events in its Beverly Hills store, culminating in a giveaway of an eco-wedding dress by Adele Wechsler. Starting on Sunday, the North Beverly Drive outpost will host a weekly fitness class designed to help brides and grooms-to-be (and singles with a penchant for egg nog) shed those stubborn post-holiday pounds. While we know it will be hard to resist a 'Weak in the Knees' leg session or a round of Partner Pilates, we recommend you save energy for the dance lesson from Dancing With the Stars choreographer Paul Barris,slated for February 19.
The month will end with a 'Bachelorette Party' to draw the winner of the Wechsler wedding dress, a couture concoction of certified organic hemp/silk blends, vegetable dyes, and remnant fabrics and lace. All you need to enter is to attend three out of the five workout sessions—a small price to pay, given that 'green is the new white' and all.
